The Franklin Mountains State Park may be a creation of Mother Nature, but the park is getting a human upgrade. A new visitors center with offices, educational displays, classrooms and public areas is coming to the park’s Tom Mays Unit. “We hope that the public will take advantage of it,” park superintendent Cesar Mendez said. Visitors can enjoy hiking, mountain biking and paragliding; while researchers from around the globe come to study the park’s geology, and wildlife. 1331 McKelligon Canyon, 915-566-6441, tpwd.state.tx.us/spdest/findadest/parks/franklin, FB @FranklinMountainsSP
